Title: thoughts on the majors for 2014 and player of the year poll
Post by: freehb on October 10, 2013, 09:59:35 PM
if you pick the player of the year (must be posted by 11:59 October 31, 2013) and travel to north Florida (or wherever I'm living in 2015) I'll pick up your round at my home course.  tiger is out of the contest though. he's my pick and barring injury or something freaky happening, he's still the best stick around.

I only included players who I believe have a realistic chance so if its a write in that wins player of the year I'll throw in drinks and a meal.

I think Spieth is the real deal.  am hoping oosthuzien's game becomes consistently what it can be and snedecker could go on a tear.  also Westwood will not win a major.

I think the Americans will win the Ryder cup and I'm predicting tiger will win a major.

I think the following players have gr8 chances at a major snedecker, Michelson, duffner and Bradley.

I'm in on Stenson. Can't wait for that free round of golf. I think the trophy should be a bronzed club head with a cigarette sticking out of it.

Rory to be player of the year. His fortunes will turn around massively for 2014.

I'll go total opposite to Harry and predict that NO American will win a Major and that us Eurpopeans will keep The Ryder Cup. So there.

As Tiger is out, I´m picking Adam Scott.

There´s now way you will get the Ryder Cup, though. :D

lol, we may have to have our own little Ryder cup...I think the internationals on here might have a shot as well, I hear stew has some game...jay has game...in the end though, the us would take it...rhoudy has game and there so many more single digit cappers in the us it's not even funny...there's just more courses and they're cheaper on this side of the pond..we have more rounds under our belt than u....u euros have stick and the courses are pure over there but there's too many of us...and we're Americans for crying out loud, we're the downtrodden of the world who got some opportunity and worked our asses off to dominate the world for the last 50 years...I agree that we're on the downside now but every country in the world these days is becoming more like greece anyway...when it comes to golf we have more land and as a people we play more golf in general, the armature JDM Ryder cup would easily go to the Americans....I think the internationals might might beat the euros....

I want dale in the clubhouse Ryder cup singles matches....I'll take Carlo when we play the internationals...

would love to see a scarecrow - rhoudy matchup, mbbg vs jank....be some good games out there ESP with side bets....and rhoudy lax....and brown water....

interesting no write ins

..,back on topic rory will not win a major in 2014....it's tough right now...there are more elite golfers right now than ever before....and nobody rises up like tiger, his mental game is the last piece and even if that never returns to form he's still the best stick in the game right now....

whoever voted for the kuch I solute u, class guy, not sure why 'cause he has so much game but I just don't see him rising up for 4 rounds like u have to do in a major...

whoever said an America won't win a major this year I'll take some of that action $100 pp?

cheers fellas, I just shot 79 (albeit from 6100 yards) but I'm going to have some scotch and rhoudylax and then give mrs. free a whopping 6 minutes of fury (as soon as the relax all wears off)...

damn I should have put him on my list he could win a major in 2014, it's the right time in his career and he is a freak like dj or bubba who when they're on can just blow it up....

Stenson has been on fire this year. Always hanging out near the top of leader boards.

But as far as the JCH Ryder Cup that sounds awesome. We really should try and put something like that together!

happy to volunteer my place fellas.  I live one exit north of world golf village...have two extras bedrooms and baths....great deals this fall at wgv for overflow (place is like euroDisney these days)

could put together a very affordable rota of courses:
SJGCC
Slammer & Squire
King & Bear
TPC Sawgrass

Only downside is not a lot of direct flights to Jacksonville...could always do Orlando to coincide w Carlo's annual pilgrimage to Disney and do the following
Disney Magnolia Course
Bay Hill
Orange Count National

I nominate MBBG as us captain....get er done more beer....we'll see if this those euros and internationals have the guts to show up and put their pride on the lime....

lol, I sure will!  95 posted today gents...I went with the following relaxing supplements and I think I may have over done it: relax now, relax all, 5 hour energy, rhoudylax, brown water and Dave Matthews (until the group made me take off my headphones)...oh and enough alieve for a horse...

I was in some kinda twilight zone....did more dancing than golf today and wasn't satisfied so after mrs. told me I was "acting crazy" I went back out and played 9 with only the rhoudylax and played ok...I think I shot a 42 but it may have been a 44...

mrs. free was pretty angry when I told her I was to tired to do tubby tonight...I did find the energy for about 8 minutes of fury...I think that just made her madder....

lol, that 8 mins prob was a stretch but sometimes when I've been drinking I've topped 15 mins...maybe only once though after the first year of marriage...

relax supplement will be put to the test this w/e gents member member and I'm swearing off booze & other stuff as I think we can win!  my partner is money and I'm....no slouch myself...

will I melt down like I have done in all other golf tournaments (excluding scrambles)?  we'll see...man I used to be money when the pressure was on in all other sports...golf is crazy...

Clubhouse Ryder cup!  lets get it going!

Relax now deliverd for me today.  shot 88 in the first round of member member (greens were 12 @ 6850 in a tournament...I was pleased) 

get this, dude in 2som we were paired with (super dark "golf tan") who's a 17, shoots 78 from the whites & that was w purposely missing 3 footers when his partner was in for par/bird (1st day is best ball) @ one point he sheepishly looked at us and said "I'm having the best round I've ever had"... I respond with "you would have had to"....the guy was no 17...f'ing sand bagger...I admit to not posting a couple good rounds and really should be more like a 10 (off 11 right now) but come on!  the odds of a 17 hcap shooting 78 on a tough course like that?  I looked up his scores and he used to be an 8 and the he suddenly started posting 97s almost 3 months ago...bottom 8 were 81, 87, 83, 86, 94, 97, 98....either he has discovered the secret to golf, lost it and found it again...or...just very sad...

How does 3 months turn someone in to a 17?  Much easier to improve HC than worsen it. It is the best scores out of many, not just the most recent.

Good playing out there Free, you've earned your 4 minutes of fury with Mrs. Free...

I think they take the best 25 scores out if your last 40...not really sure though...my hcap just never moves much anymore....

I'm back baby!  tough couple weeks...haven't had my usual "free" time up in my office with my relaxing sups...mrs. free made me move back into the marital bed chamber but I finally moved back up after being denied 4 mins of fury 2 days in a row...

getting it from all sides these days...crazy restructuring at work, wife paying thousands of dollars on "home projects" (which delayed my roddio plan)...wife finding relaxing sups and getting angry....kids going nuts...

no time for the important things like playing golf, practicing, shopping for gear, chatting on forums about gear...

speaking of which, I have a super exciting new bag planned for 2014.  RODDIO!  RODDIO!  RODDIO!

maybe a 153 and anything epon may come out with!

M, get these euroclubhousers fired up for the clubhouse Ryder cup!

the euro wusses prob don't have the guts to come here...we may need to go to Scotland or uk to bring the pain...question is which side will jay play on?  us? euro? intl?

I'm sure there'll be some decent euro tools there but nobody as deep as the Americans!   Heck, I may end up being a trainer/spiritual advisor on the American team and I'm...no slouch myself!...
